The CEO of Logic20/20 in Seattle, Christian O’Meara draws on decades of industry experience in offering consulting services to businesses facing a diverse range of challenges. As an avid player of sports, Christian O’Meara finds an extensive array of lessons applicable to his work.
Beyond offering excellent analogies for talking about business, playing sports also provides insight into successful practices for team-building and achieving success. If you want to improve your company culture, consider these three points taken from sports:
1. Be a Great Coach
Great coaches achieve more than simply setting goals and telling the team what to do. They make it known, if only for a few moments, that they care about their team members as individuals and appreciate their value.
2. Build Trust
Take responsibility for any failures and lead the way in being open and transparent. By being trustworthy yourself, you set the standard for your team members to trust each other and remain committed to the team.
3. Prepare Well
Although you will always want to win, proper preparation means also anticipating potential losses. That preparation can help maintain a positive attitude through difficult times, ensuring perseverance to final success.
